As far as possible, we aim that the Web site is:
- technically accessible, in that it is possible for all users to access all information and functionality;
- equally usable, in that it is not prohibitively difficult or time consuming for users with disabilities to carry out normal tasks;
- capable of being adapted or configured by individual users to meet their specific needs and preferences;
- capable of interfacing with appropriate, widely available assistive technologies employed by users.
All pages are designed to meet Level AA Success Criteria.
The Web site uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS Level 2.1) for visual layout. This ensures that content is perfectly linearised and improves performance on a wide range of browsers and other user agents.
Pages are designed to validate as XHTML 1.0 Strict.
